Thread: Critique please

  1. #1

    Default Critique please

    Is this a competition print? My sister created it and is thinking of entering it in our local PPA competition. Don't be nice, be honest. If I need to tone it down for her, I will - she's not used to critiques!

    Thanks!

    Default The rest of it ?

    Hi Lori;

    Is that cropped or the entire image ? If there is more, please post the entire original file.

    Default Ok ...

    Hi Lori;

    I was afraid of that. An image like that would do a lot better if there was at least 3 times as much area around the horse. Hmmmmm, maybe she could go back and photograph the spot again and then add the horse in Photoshop.

    Just like portraits of people, more images with the subject fairly small on one of the golden mean points do well compared to close ups.

    I do like the effect she did ... I just wish there was an entire prairie showing.

    I did a version , in Craig Style, and hope it gives you some ideas.

    Craig, thanks - I like your version! And Robin, I like your title. And Stan, thanks for your honesty. This may sound stupid, but by "hang"...what exactly does that mean? Is that different than "merit"? For an example, what score would you give this? less than 69? I don't get all the terms.....

    Thanks!

    "This may sound stupid, but by "hang"."

    Sorry, ancient term.....hang means score 80 or above, or merit.

    Thanks - I've heard it used a lot, but was never sure what it means.

    Lori - anything 70 and above will generally "hang" in the show. But most of the tiome when someone says "hang" they mean will it hang at National - which of course means 80 or above.
